!! OMG, free music: ‘Taking It All Back Now (Austerity Measures)’ by Betty Burke !!

betty-burke-portrait.jpg
Lo-fi country-rockers Betty Burke have released a free four-song EP called “Taking It All Back Now (Austerity Measures).”
Full of catchy hooks and evocative vocals, this EP is also true to its name:

“No Drums No Masters!” It’s not an ideological slogan- it’s a sign of the times. Musical austerity measures. Forgo the rehearsal space and cars that real drums require, and just lay it down with some cheap beats from a rented drum machine. As usual, the songs are all based on true stories. Low Budget- even lower than last time! But rich with imagination.

Download “Taking It All Back Now (Austerity Measures)” at Bandcamp.

!! OMG, you bettah sing, b*tch: Beyonce gets some help covering Whitney !!


Yeah, Beyonce’s tribute to Whitney with a performance of “I Will Always Love You” that melts into “Halo” is great and all (and it really is), but WHO is the lady with all the crazy one-liners? She’s the real star, with quippy comments like, “You bettah sing, bitch,” “Yes, Nippy! Let the Lord use you, gurl! Let him use you muthah!” and my personal favorite, “Yo, if she says ‘Whitney we can see your halo,’ I’m done. If she says´╗┐ that I’m f*ckin finished.”
(Thanks, Kevin!)

!! OMG, watch Erykah Badu’s music video with The Flaming Lips !!

First Time Ever .jpg
The music video for Erykah Badu and The Flaming Lips‘ stellar cover of Roberta Flack’s “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” can be summed up in four words: glitter, blood, jizz and tits. There are, however, a few other things to note: It is very amazing. It co-stars Erykah’s very naked sister Nayrok Badu. It is very NSFW.
Also: the song is included on The Flaming Lips’ Record Store Day album The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends, which is being re-released on June 26 by Warner Bros.
UPDATE: Since the allegedly premature release of the video by the Flaming Lips, an online Twitter feud has erupted between their camp and Erykah’s regarding what the final version of the video should have been. Read Erykah’s heated personal response here. You can find the rest on the Twittersphere.

Madonna‘s MDNA World Tour kicks things off tonight in Tel Aviv, where the singer’s parade of designer costumes will make their debut (along with Madge’s Gaga cover leaked this week from rehearsals). Enlisting favorites Jean Paul Gaultier, Jeremy Scott, and Arianne Phillips to create her various looks, Madonna will wear a combination of dramatic lingerie-inspired looks, Joan of Arc nods, and a Drum Major getup one can only assume will be worn during “Give Me All Your Luvin.” Check out the rest of the sketches over at Kelly Green Blog.
